About me
I was born and raised in West Wales and am fully bilingual in Welsh and English. I completed my primary and secondary education through the medium of Welsh.

For 16 years, I worked as Head of Languages in UK secondary schools, teaching higher-level Spanish, German, English and Welsh. I currently work as a freelance translator and language tutor. I am a Chartered Linguist and a full member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and MET.

I have an MA in Translation with Language Technology (German and Spanish) from Swansea University as well as a BA in European Languages - German, Spanish and Italian from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. I also hold a PGCE (Exeter University) and CELTA (Cambridge University) in languages. This academic training has equipped me with the necessary skills to produce accurate and quality translations with careful attention to detail.

I have lived in Germany and Spain for considerable amounts of time and travel regularly to these countries, as well as Argentina. I am fluent in both languages. My husband is Italian and therefore, I have excellent command of the language.

I regularly take part in continuing professional development in the form of workshops, conferences and private study. In order to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in my fields of specialisation, I am a strong advocate of continuous professional development in my role as a translator. Here is a selection of courses that I have undertaken or am currently undertaking:

Diploma in Translation Preparatory Course, IH Barcelona, Spain

DBS Enhanced Clearance check

I have undertaken translations in the fields of education, travel and tourism, government, business and marketing, current affairs and art/film/music. I am also happy to consider proofreading projects in a range of other subjects.
